The Gypsy King's American promoter, Bob Arum, claimed "the fight is dead" after previous reports suggested the pair were close to signing contracts for a blockbuster bout this summer.

The respective teams for WBC champion Fury and IBF, WBA and WBO title-holder Joshua are understood to be reviewing the details, and promoter Eddie Hearn is hopeful of making a formal announcement this week.

Lee, who has been helping to prepare Fury alongside Sugarhill Steward in Las Vegas, admits the 32-year-old is growing tired over the delay but insists he will be raring to go when the time comes.

"He is frustrated," Lee told Sky Sports about Fury. "The end-date was February, then it was March, now we're still going on.

"He's very frustrated that the biggest, most powerful people in boxing (promoters Bob Arum, Eddie Hearn and all the networks) but they can't seem to get the deal done for whatever reason.

"I don't know if it's to his detriment or his benefit that this wait has happened.

"He will be ready to unleash the fury when this fight is on!"

Undefeated Fury can be backed at 1.53 to come out on top in the all-British affair, while Joshua is priced at 2.50.
